Content creator Dazs posted an EA Game Changers video to YouTube on January 28, explaining how to how to best handle the 30-30 repeater, and the Anvil Receiver option then appeared at the bottom right corner of the HUD.
This instantly caught the attention of many fans in the Apex community, and now there’s a ton of excitement about the Hop-Up item returning, One fan said: “It is decided, I’m gonna use Flatline the whole of next season.”
This Hop-Up will decrease the rate of fire, use two ammo per shot in single fire mode, and give a massive boost to semi-auto damage. You could previously attach it to the R-301 and Flatline, so it’s likely that won’t change when Respawn bring it back.
